At DaVita, we believe a company can also be a community, and a community of committed individuals can actually make a difference in the way health care is practiced.
DaVita is the dialysis division of DaVita HealthCare Partners Inc., a Fortune 500® company that, through its operating divisions, provides a variety of health care services to patient populations throughout the United States and abroad.

What can you expect as a dialysis nurse at DaVita?
Patients - Help patients improve their quality of life by delivering outstanding clinical outcomes.
Success at a DaVita dialysis facility is measured by how well patients respond to their dialysis treatments. As an RN you work with a team to ensure that each patient receives the best care possible, and in turn lives a healthier life outside of the clinic.
Relationships - Build long-term bonds with your patients and their families.
As a dialysis nurse you see your patients three to four times each week for a few hours at a time, while they receive their treatments. The dialysis lifestyle can be very trying for our patients. By forming relationships with them, our nurses understand each patient's unique needs and help ease some of their burden.
Team - Your team supports one another and creates a fun work environment.
Give me a T, give me an E, finish it up with an A and an M - what's that spell? TEAM! We have seven Core Values that we live and work by and Team is one of them. We work hard - sometimes under pressure - but we work together with the common goal of delivering the best patient care and supporting each other in the process.
- We definitely work as a Team. It can be stressful at times and having a good Team means that we all help each other out despite our job title. I've worked in other clinics and there is nothing like what we have here. - Elizabeth B.
